Knights of the Zodiac: Saint Seiya

A contemporary CG adaptation of the Saint Seiya manga, following the eponymous Seiya, who is recruited to be a Bronze Knight ultimately serving a modern incarnation of the Goddess Athena, as he also seeks his missing sister. I haven't read the manga, so I can't judge the first six episodes' loyalty towards the source material, and there are things such as a character's resemblance to the X-Men's Wolverine, a Yoda wannabe trainer, and the convention of characters shouting the names of their attacks not translating well to the Anglophone world, but it's definitely watchable, if unmemorable.
